Ask the three people that were stabbed this morning and the few that were shot last week if crime is down. That is about as believable as Kennuff passing the BAR exam.

Wow! Jacktown looks like it has become a really safe place to work and live. If only Madison and Rankin counties could follow this example and lower crime at every level!

Bang bang bang bang!

This is good news. Of course, it's not welcome on this site. The commenters on here would rather crime go up so they can complain about a "democrat" city than for it to decrease.

I can believe the reporting of crimes is down. No use reporting anything if the cops refuse to chase the criminals. Actual crimes committed is more like at an all time high, just the reporting is down. Jackson should be able to get rid of a few cops. They don't do anything anyway.

Great news indeed! No denying. But do you feel safe in Jackson? I'll wait.....

Even if the crime stats are down . . . which I doubt, one still must do the belt buckle crawl when in the City with Soul.

My truck was burglarized yesterday in the Highland Village parking lot for the 2nd time in a year. The Jackson Gun & Knife Club scored another 9mm for the streets. Yeah, crime is down.....

Have to throw the Bullshit flag on this one. My ol’ Army boss use to say, “Figures lie and liars figure”. One would have to think JPD is cherry picking its crime stats or they need to get new batteries for their calculator.
If violent crimes are reduced by 2.5% with 1,457 less … that means there were 58,280 Violent Crimes within the City (less State properties)? Good God! You stand about a 1 in 3 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Jackson with those numbers. It has been about 15 years since I did Uniform Crime Reporting and I don’t remember all the subcategories but quite apparently only a few are listed in this release or they have their numbers jacked up badly.

20% reduction in Property Crimes with 42 less?!? Naaay … That means Jackson only had 168 property crimes reported in ’15, yeah … right.

The Chief and Colendula need to read and PROOF these releases before they put them out.

Crime IN Jackson IS down.

What is happening is the crime is being committed in Flowood and Ridgeland by criminals FROM Jackson. They are then fleeing back home to the 3rd Ward and the safe keeping of FAT A$$ Kenneuf Stokes.

Enough name calling; commit a crime in Jackson , lock them up, try them, then let them out. Sets a good example for other members of the criminal community. The City of Jackson/ Hinds County breed's criminals like roaches, catch them, feed them, try them, lock them up, let them out. Kenneth Stokes is a smoke screen, the real problem is the Criminal Justice System in Jackson and Hinds County.

Not-from-Jackson commenters consistently comparing their areas to Jackson while downing the place is pretty common here. If Jackson is so terrible, why must it be continuously pointed out to the point where even a tiny sliver of positive news out of Jackson must be discredited? Are your communities that awful, or is it just a few obsessed crazies who are afflicted with a bad case of little brother syndrome?

4:49, One reason people are downing Jackson is, much like this thread, most of what People in Jackson try to get people to believe is pure bull shit.
Maybe people have a very short memory. It wasn't that long ago that Jackson changed the way they reported crimes. Many crimes were bunched together and reported as one crime only. Now who knows how much crime is really happening in Jackson. They have cooked the books. It doesn't take a genius to listen to the news and see how much crime goes on in Jackson. That is even with the new condensed version of the crimes.
People in other cities can see how many crimes committed in their city are done by Jackson citizens. Most businesses have moved out of Jackson and the crooks are reduced to stealing from each other. Any sane person has moved our including those people with jobs.
Reporting numerous crimes as one crime does not fool everyone, just those who are trying to hide the actual figures.

PEOPLE, PLEASE STOP LEAVING SHIT IN YOUR VEHICLES - ESPECIALLY GUNS! As long as there are people who do dumb, irresponsible things like leaving valuables in their vehicles, there will be vehicles broken into, period. You should NEVER have left a gun in your vehicle, EVER!

The gun should be on your person where it belongs. If you were not in the truck with the gun it was worthless. Just candy for thieves.

Never leave a gun in a vehicle, especially if that vehicle is a truck. Crooks know trucks are far more likely to contain firearms.

So if you are a law abiding Mississippian traveling through Jackghanistan in your truck don't stop at Highland Village, period, because even if you aren't not carrying any weapons the parasites that travel the open sewage ditches in our "Capital City" will still break into your truck merely on the belief that it holds guns.

Is crime really down in Jackson or is the jail full and they do not have room for anymore criminals? I heard they have to release one prisoner before they can arrest another.
Wonder how large of a prison it would take to hold all of the criminals in Jackson?

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
